The Toronto Zoo offers added-value items such as our Giant Panda Experience, causal animal encounters, or Meet the Keeper talks, which will enhance your group event. These unique and engaging opportunities are included in the cost of admission. Your guests are sure to have a day of adventure from beginning to end!

Giant Panda Experience and Panda Interpretive Centre:

The Toronto Zoo is home to Canada’s only giant pandas and giant panda cubs. Male, Da Mao and Female Er Shun are a delight to watch and on October 13th 2015 the Toronto Zoo introduced two adorable panda cubs Ji Panpan (male) and Jia Yueyue (female). Before you get to close to our giant panda family, you will have the opportunity to take in our state-of-the-art Panda Interpretive Centre. You don’t want to miss it! This climate controlled centre features interactive and interpretive stations for visitors to enjoy year round.

Our giant pandas can be viewed daily in either their indoor or outdoor holding areas, depending on the season and the weather, and will be calling the Toronto Zoo home until spring 2018!
